~ In Memoriam by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

London Nonesuch Press 1930.

Tall 8vo., bound in the 1980s in suede and calf painted with green paint and with inlaid sculpted leather pieces, on the back is a pendulum made from silver cord and black painted leather and there is a gilt dot on each cover, the fore edges are painted grey and black, the inside covers are in full black morocco with a large cross tooled on each of them, signed with Sellars’s monogram on the lover turnin. In an extraordinary sculptural box of two glass sides framed in black which slot into a black stand, the material is leather pieces glued together, formed and then varnished. The box has caused a very slight rubbing to the spine but this is generally in extremely good condition.

A remarkable achievement, executed by Sellars in the early 1980s. The binding suits the book well with more than a whiff of High Victorian mourning.
